Vincennes University is a post-secondary institution located in small-town Vincennes, Indiana. With an enrollment of some 10,000 students, Vincennes is small compared to her big sister, Indiana University. But VU has a big spirit: its motto, “Smaller certainly doesn’t imply inferior,” communicates the school’s commitment to big ideals. Vincennes is the perfect choice for students who desire a university education but prefer a more intimate environment. In the spirit of proving it is “small but not inferior,” the school offers over two hundred degree programs in a variety of disciplines from the humanities and performing arts to science and business.

Well-rounded university students don’t study all the time; they join fraternities or sororities, perform community service, and spend time developing leadership skills. Vincennes offers an array of extracurricular activities. The Red Skelton Performing Arts Center and the Donald G. Bell Recreational Facility are points of school pride, offering cultural and fitness enrichment as well.

Paying for college is a valid concern for students facing the college years, but with its affordable tuition costs, Vincennes is an attractive option! And academic scholarships, partial and full home-school scholarships, work study, and financial aid are available to help qualified students defray educational costs.

Students with a high school diploma or GED may apply for admission. For details, contact the VU admissions office. Students who desire the best of both worlds—a university education in an intimate environment—will agree that Vincennes University is their best choice.
